If you are planning to sell, curb appeal can dramatically impact the value of your home. Even if you are not selling, an exterior remodeling upgrade can enhance pride of ownership immeasurably.
Most realtors advise that homeowners update the interior for added resale value. But that investment could become almost worthless if the exterior also needs help. An updated exterior can also help expand entertainment and living space.
Popular Exterior Improvements to Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Certain exterior enhancements can instantly improve the appearance and value of your home. Contact an experienced design build company that can help you visualize the possibilities with a fresh new exterior design while making it a reality.
Here are possibilities to consider:
1. Coat of Paint or New Siding
The first thing that visitors notice is the condition of the siding. Chipped and peeling paint can degrade your home’s appearance as much as anything. Before doing anything else, research the best paints or stains to upgrade the appearance of your home. The exterior remodeling experts at Masters Design-Build can help you select the best, most impactful colors and materials.
New siding can make a dramatic difference. The possibility of a whole new look to your home can be daunting. By changing the siding and possibly including some masonry wainscotting or other contrast, you can change the whole feel of the home.
Don’t forget about the trim. Apply a bold complementary color to the trim and shutters around the home. This offers a modern, clean look to make your home stand out.
2. New Front Door
Your front door is a focal point that passersby and visitors notice immediately. Consider replacing your old wooden or dented door and the surrounding molding with new material. You can also opt to use a standout shade that complements the rest of the home. Adding or upgrading a pediment or other feature can also help to gracefully frame the entry.
3. Upgrade the Roofing
Replacing the shingles on your roof can serve a dual purpose. Not only does it rejuvenate your roof structure to prevent future leakage problems but also creates a new, more appealing appearance.
4. Rebuild the Front Porch
If you are tired of your worn front porch, consider a redesign that provides you more space. A new porch can also help to dramatically enhance the appeal of your entryway. Embrace the idea of using your front porch for more than just a platform to enter and exit your front door. Consider using it as a functional outdoor space, perhaps as a place to sit and relax at the end of the day.
5. Landscaping and Exterior Lighting
It is no secret that a poorly maintained front yard is an eyesore for everyone, not just visitors. With some time, effort, and imagination, you can create a glorious appearance around your home. One that is inviting, natural and requires minimal maintenance.
For extra aesthetics, consider adding strategically placed solar lights around the perimeter of your home. These can add drama and functionality once the sun goes down.
You might also want to consider adding some subtle lighting beneath the soffits and other external architectural elements.
